My grandson usually asks me to make a bunch of Chocolate  Chip Cookies for one school  event or another, and he always needs it yesterday!!! Being partially disabled I do not drive and realizingI have don't  have enough chocolate Chips to make cookies            I came to the conclusion that I would have to make something else.  I found a bag of Butterscotch chips (Nestle.of course)and used the butterscotch brownie recipe on the bag. To make enough for his class, I used an 11x15 sheet pan,lined with parchment paper. The cooking time was reduced, 5 minutes or so.  The next day my grandson called and told me that all the kids asked if I could make the butterscotch brownies again. He said they were so so good. It was gratitying to know that everything work out.  I will now keep Butterscotch chips in stock. I'll be ready for the next phone call, and bake my butterscotch brownies with the love and pride that my Chocolate Chip Cookies gave me.Smile

Isn't it amazing what we will do for our grandchildren.  My 3 grandsons are 26, 22, and 3.  For the older ones who lived near me when they were little, always had requests for different shaped cakes.  I used to spend hours decorating!  The 3 year old lives 3 1/2 hours away, so I bake his favorite cookie (Soft Pumpkin), and mail them off.  It works!
